Our nursery school, Curro Castle Klerksdorp, offers an integrated play-based programme to children from 3 months to 5 years. Grade R learners are also accommodated at the Castle however, as their daily activities and programmes are built in to the foundation phase of primary school, Grade R is included here.
What do we offer?
At Curro Klerksdorp, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural activities that ensure learners develop into well-rounded individuals. We provide a strong educational foundation starting with carefully designed programmes in Grade R (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and building to a variety of specialised subjects in primary and high school. Teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans and Setswana are available as additional language options
Some of our specialised subjects include Robotics and Engineering Graphics and Design
Our enhanced curriculum incorporates a project-based learning approach, while our dedicated teachers and recreational activities aim to make learning a fun experience. We also incorporate 21st-century learning by using tablets in the classroom for certain subjects. Our learners are prepared for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12, and we focus on a greater world-readiness rather than merely an exam-driven approach. Some of our specialised subjects include Information Technology, Visual Arts, Robotics and Engineering Graphics and Design.
Primary school learners are offered exciting opportunities to get involved in STEAMD activities and showcase innovative projects at a national Curro level. With our market day, the Grade 7 learners have the opportunity to show off their marketing and business skills as part of Economic and Management Sciences.
What does our boarding school offer?
Curro Klerksdorp’s boarding school offers safe accommodation for learners from Grade 6 to Grade 12. With laundry and housekeeping facilities, learner-driven entertainment and activities, comfortable learning areas, and live-in boarding school staff, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer a wide variety of sports and cultural activities, including Curro Create programmes, aimed at helping learners develop interests and talents that might otherwise have been undiscovered.
With carefully selected teachers and coaches as well as excellent facilities, we go to great lengths to ensure that each learner is stimulated in their areas of interests. Robotics and gaming clubs provide a fantastic platform for learners to hone their analytical and technological skills while all learners from Grade 4 to Grade 10 have the opportunity to go on different camps. We also offer e-gaming as an extramural activity and learners can obtain national colours and represent South Africa.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Our school’s modern classrooms are fitted with the latest learning tools aimed at providing our learners with an enhanced learning experience. In Grade R, the Duplo Lego programme introduces thinking patterns such as creative thinking and problem solving through fun, innovative play. These thinking patterns form the basis for an understanding of later Robotics studies.
Our learners further benefit from 21st-century learning by gaining skills relevant to the workplace of the future in subjects such as Technology and Natural Sciences, and by using interactive whiteboards as well as tablets (e-books) for certain subjects from the intermediate phase onwards. Using innovative technology allows teachers to provide a wealth of information at the touch of a button and better prepares learners for the workplace of the future.
